Meet Your Club Team Management
With over 27 years of experience I have worked with and for some of the best in the fitness industry. I began my career with Wellbridge in 1992 and worked at one of our clubs in Fort Lauderdale in personal training, sales, operations and then became a General Manager. I relocated to Tampa in 2005 and have been at Harbour Island Athletic Club ever since. Having a passion for this business is what keeps you going day after day. It does not feel like a job when you are making a difference in people’s lives. We want to be a second home for our members where they can enjoy all of the amenities that we offer.
Assistant General Manager
With over a lifetime of personal fitness experience and 15 years working within the industry my passion is to HELP others live their life to the FULLEST! My foundation comes from gymnastics which took me all the way to be a D1 Collegiate Athlete but along the way I participated in countless sports on the individual and team basis. At 15 I underwent Bilateral Total Knee Reconstruction surgery. The team of Doctor’s, Physical Therapist & Coaches spurred my passion to live a life of helping others recover and prevent injuries to be able to live a full life.
Assistant Sales Manager
I eat, breathe and sleep fitness! Working out is the most important part of my daily routine – a day without exercise is truly like a day without sunshine. I make it happen for a minimum of 45 minutes, and I have been doing this since I turned 30. I am 66 and have never missed a day. Harbour Island Athletic Club has been my second home for over seven years and I absolutely love selling the gift of health and fitness to all!
Personal Training Manager
As a new Tampa resident, I am very excited to finally replace the Michigan winters for the Florida sunshine! I was a former collegiate tennis player with fitness at the top of her priority list her entire life. Thanks to Florida’s sunshine, I’m able to live an active outdoor lifestyle all year long. After starting with Harbour Island Athletic Club as a personal trainer, tennis instructor, and group fitness instructor, I am very excited to continue to provide our members with the tools they need to become the best version of themselves!
With over 30+ years in the business I have enjoyed the game of tennis throughout my childhood which gave me the opportunity to play in college. With now over 11 years at Harbour Island, instructing tennis gives me the joy to see players become better with each shot every day. Managing my tennis pros, tennis programs and teaching gives me the opportunity to help members enjoy an active and a lifetime sport with a lots of rewards. This passion of mine has certainly opened many doors for me, especially the opportunity to work at Harbour Island!
David Enlisted in the Marine Corps out of high school. He served eight years in which he was in charge of fixing aircraft weapon systems. While in the Marine Corps, his love for fitness and fixing things deepened immensely. While getting his College degrees, he worked as a personal trainer for the University of Tampa.

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” — Henry Ford
I have always taken pride in establishing and maintaining strong relationships with my family, friends, peers and cross-functional teams. As a teacher and counselor, my focus has always been on the whole person- mind, body, & soul. Beginning as a member here at HIAC, I fell in love with the community of people in Tampa and took advantage of all the opportunities from studio fitness classes to personal training and tennis. It was only natural that I would begin a new career here with Harbour Island Athletic Club. As the Sales manager, communication and collaboration are critical for a successful cross- functional department. Our team is committed to helping others be successful and engaged in our wellness community.
Studio Fitness Manager
Having grown up in Massachusetts, I’ve been into fitness my whole life including swimming, soccer, softball, as well as a marathon runner. My work background is in advertising and design, however I started my journey in the health & fitness industry in 1995 with Group Fitness and Personal Training. Five years later, I became a Licensed Massage Therapist. I have found that helping others with their fitness journey’s is where I work best. It gives me great pleasure in successfully watching our members work hard to reach their fitness goals

For decades, Harbour Island Athletic Club has played an important role in the lives of Tampa residents and businesses. The club has been able to celebrate Halloween Parties and Shamrock Shakes with you, Stanley Cups and Super Bowls, and popular class after popular class in our studios.
During this time, members and teammates have created a vibrant group that connects for all types of fitness as well as countless social events both inside the club and around town. The cliché “work hard, play hard” definitely describes the healthy community you’ve helped develop. That’s what makes this announcement so difficult.
Since the COVID-19 shutdowns and their continued impact on our industry, Wellbridge ownership has worked diligently with the landlord to negotiate rent that leads to a sustainable and healthy business. In conjunction, our team has routinely gone above and beyond to serve your health and wellness needs while working to push the business back to profitable levels. Unfortunately, the Landlord has now decided to take the property back. Therefore, we must close the club’s doors permanently on Tuesday, February 28.
